OBJECTIVES The aim of this report was to evaluate the 5-year clinical performance and survival of zirconia (NobelProcera™) single crowns. METHODS All patients treated with porcelain-veneered zirconia single crowns in a private practice during the period October 2004 to November 2005 were included. The records were scrutinized for clinical data.(More)
OBJECTIVES All-ceramic crowns have become increasingly used also in the posterior regions, but there are only few studies documenting the clinical outcome of these restorations. The aim was therefore to present the 3-year outcome of zirconia (NobelProcera) single crowns. METHODS All patients treated with porcelain-veneered zirconia single crowns in a(More)
BACKGROUND The use of computer numeric controlled (CNC)-milled titanium frameworks is a new technique for framework fabrication, and few clinical reports have been made on this treatment modality. PURPOSE The goal of this study was to report the clinical performance of implant-supported prostheses with CNC-milled titanium frameworks in the edentulous jaw(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to investigate and compare the precision of fabrication in repeatqdly produced computer numeric controlled (CNC)-milled frameworks with consventional castings, and to analyze the distortion from application of different veneering materials. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty identical titanium frameworks were fabricated by(More)
BACKGROUND The development of digitized techniques for manufacturing implant frameworks has made possible alternative "impression" techniques for recording implant positions. PURPOSE The objective of the present study was to test the precision and accuracy of a three-dimensional photogrammetric technique to record implant positions in vitro and to compare(More)
BACKGROUND New computer numeric controlled (CNC)-milled frameworks for implant-supported prostheses have been introduced. However, no data are available on the precision of fit of these new frameworks. PURPOSE The purpose of this study is to evaluate the precision of fit of a new CNC-milled framework technique (I-Bridge, Biomain AB, Helsingborg, Sweden)(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to report the 5-year clinical performance of implant-supported prostheses with laser-welded titanium frameworks and to compare their performance with that of prostheses provided with conventional cast frameworks. MATERIALS AND METHODS On a routine basis, a consecutive group of 824 edentulous patients were provided(More)
BACKGROUND Few long-term follow-up studies on treatment concepts using computer numeric control-milled titanium frameworks have been conducted. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical and radiographic performance of implant-supported prostheses provided with computer numeric control-milled titanium frameworks in the edentulous jaw and to compare their(More)
BACKGROUND An increasing number of elderly patients are treated with implants, but results for the elderly patient in terms of implant success and adaptation to implant prostheses are contradictory. OBJECTIVE To retrospectively study the 5-year clinical and radiologic performances of fixed implant-supported prostheses placed in edentulous elderly patients(More)
BACKGROUND With the development of milled titanium implant frameworks, new surfaces that have not previously been studied are now being used in screw joints. PURPOSE The aims of the present study were to compare the preload produced in screw-retained titanium and gold alloy frameworks and the preload for titanium frameworks before and after the(More)
